Cool Image edit software ??? (WinXP)

Currently I am using Quark 7.3. I (voluntarily and for 'fun') prepare various forms, programs, etc. for our HS basketball teams. I ran into a situation recently where I placed a color photograph on the cover of a program and ran into all kinds of issues when it went to print -- re: CMYK formatting with the color printing correctly (blue, ugh!). I was not able to adjust color precisely enough in Quark, and the Photoshop Elements does not support CMYK. I ended up taking it to a professional graphic designer who was able to adjust in a different 'professional' version of Photoshop.

My question is...is there a software out there that is very good in dealing with color CMYK conversion without breaking the bank. Since I already have Quark I'm reluctant to invest in the CS3 (I understand it has the DTP, Photo editing, Video editing, .pdf conversion, and more, etc. - $$$ YIKES!) especially since I do all of this work on a strictly voluntary basis.

If I were to invest in CS3, what version would be best for strictly print work??

BTW, I operate on Windows XP. If anyone has any suggestions and advice I'd really appreciate it!
